It’s no secret to the people around me that I have an undeniable love for all things New York. The shopping, the food, Central Park…I can’t get enough! One of my favorite things to do in NYC is go for pizza and garlic knots. These seem to be the staple ‘add-on’ in any of the pizza parlors that I frequent. They are definitely delicious.
I’m a huge fan of garlic. There was a nice little farmer’s market by my house this summer selling fresh, organic garlic heads that were about the size of my head. I am honestly sad that I only have about 4-5 cloves left of this delicious garlic. But I honestly could eat it plain it was that delicious.
These garlic knots are SO simple and quick to make. And they will definitely ward off any vampires this week! You can feel free to make tweaks to this recipe such as adding in Parmesan cheese or a pinch of oregano. No matter what, you can’t go wrong with butter and garlic. Enjoy!
- 1 pound fresh pizza dough
- ½ cup butter
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- Sea salt
- Divide the pizza dough into 24 equal parts. Roll them into 'snakes' and tie them into knots. Place the knots onto a parchment lined baking sheet, cover loosely and store in a warm place for 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Melt the butter along with the garlic, garlic powder and parsley in a saucepan. Brush each of the knots with the butter mixture, reserving half for when they come out of the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Remove the knots from the oven and brush with the remaining butter. Sprinkle the tops with sea salt and serve immediately.
